  1. My father-in-law, Roscoe Woilder, was assigned to Argus Unit 9. The official record we received shows he was assigned from August 3, 1943 to June 27, 1944 (ARM3c, ARM2c). He told us he was sent to Nukufetau and thought is was close to Americam Samoa. He is living in Oregon.

  2. Just talked with Roscoe. He does not have any photos of his time in the service. He told me his C/O was TT Ellsworth and remembered 2 other names, Frank Sadler (who he thought was the only other officer besides Ellsworth in the unit, and with whom he used to play poker) and Harley Keser. He found out later that, unbeknownst to him, his marine cousin was on the island when he arrived and was later sent to, and was killed, on Tarawa.
